Subject: RE: Lyr/Tune Req: Oh How He Lied
Looking back through the thread it seems that Jim's reference from 1910 is the earliest. Up to that point I was beginning to think typical Frank Proffit/Frank Luther/Lesley Sarony material, but Mike might be right in his guess as American college song. However the fact that it has become so widespread with not a lot of variation smacks of an actual popular recording perhaps on the first 78s, although pre-1910 might have been cylinders.
